I added the writing and other die cuts from Cricut Design Studio (any
die cutting machine could be used).
I inked the edges and added a flower with a Wiggle eye to the base
just for fun.

Thanks for checking it out!

Happy Halloween Banner

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
The moon laughs and whispers,
'tis near Halloween!
(Author unknown)

I have for you today, a cute Halloween banner using the
 Happy Halloween file from Kadoodle Bug Designs.

Glitter and 3D Foam dots added sparkles and dimension.
Brown ribbon from my stash was used
to attach al the pieces to make the banner.
All the pieces were in one file.

Hope you are getting all your things ready for Halloween!

Kadoodle Bug Designs.

The file is a free file for a while so head on over and
snatch it up.

Pumpkin Hunting Time

It is Pumpkin Hunting Time

Soon the frost will kill the vines on 
the pumpkins and families will
be searching for the perfect pumpkin.

I have used two different files from
Kadoodle Bug Designs to create the cute
pumpkin hunting layout.

The paper I used was from Recollections and my stash.
I inked the edges with ColorBox ink and chalks.
I used glue and 3D foam squares to create dimension.

Happy Pumpkin Hunting!!!

Cutie KaToodles - Pumpkin Spice Cookies Bear

I'm dreaming of pumpkin spice everything.
I love Pumpkin Cookies from the bakery 
(or homemade if I am ambitious).

I also love the colors of fall, reds, golds, browns, and oranges.

(Not my photo. From Google Images)

To create a decorative recipe page, I used the 

The quilt block is from Creative Kuts September Card Train files.
(Awesome group by the way! Contact the sites manage for
the card trains.)

The paper I used was either from Recollections or DCWV.

Can't wait to see what you make with your die cutting machines!

Halloween is starting at Kadoodle Bug Designs

How do you celebrate Halloween?

Will you have any parties with food?

Today I made a silverware holder for the spooky dinner tables.

I colored the PDF files.
Picture is off Spooky Halloween Kitties and 
Witchy Poo Kitties (Found at the bottom of this post).

Assembled the Kitty.

Glued it to an orange ban I decorated with 
a black marker.

Next, I glued the ends of the ban together to form a 

I wrapped the silver ware with a napkin and slid the in the ring.

It will even stand up so it can be used as a small decoration or placeholder on the tables.

There is another file that is somewhat like this file called,

I Like BIG Cups and I Cannot Lie

A new season is just around the corner.
In fact, our weatherman says there is going to be snow 
in our Utah mountains really soon.

It is time for the

Make sure to visit them and check out their cute files.

In keeping with the coffee, tea, or hot cocoa theme, I choose to use the 
Who likes small amounts of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa?
Not me when it comes to hot cocoa.

I used the PDF version of the Pumpkin Frap Bear (included with the cut files),
I colored the pieces with Spectrum Noir Markers.
Next, I cut the pieces and glued them together. 
I added 3D adhesive foam squares to some of the pieces to
add dimension.
I then glued it to a card base along with a shape for the sentiment.

KBD Baby Pumpkin Owl place mat for Thanksgiving dinner

I love Thanksgiving dinner especially when 
the family works together to fix it.

Kadoodle Bug Designs is starting to get their Autumn files
ready to be used by all fans of Kadoodle Bug Designs.

I choose to use the Baby Pumpkin Card
which happens to be free right now.

I used the PDF file in it.
Colored the pieces with my Spectrum Noir
alcohol markers. (The pumpkin got a little
sun burnt.)

I put it on some paper from Recollections and 
DCWV (Grade School pack).

Now if Thanksgiving dinner could be ready this
fast and easy.

Cutie KaToodles - Fall Pumpkin Turkey

With the calendars changing to Autumn months,
I thought I would share a Thanksgiving idea with you today.
The file I used is the Cutie KaToodles - Fall Pumpkin Turkey.

In the group of different types of files, you receive when you order a file from 
Kadoodle Bug Designs, there is one a PDF file. 

It can be used in two ways.
You can cut the individual pieces and use them to trace onto different 
colored cardstock. This would make it so people who don't
have a cutting machine can still make the cut files
from Kadoodle Bug Designs.

You can also do what I did. I colored each piece the colors I wanted them. I then cut them out. Next, I glued them together.

I then cut some a 4 x 8-inch piece of cardstock and a 1.5 x 8 piece of cardstock. I folded them in half.
I then glued them together.
Next, I glued the turkey to the folded pieces and
added a name tag.

You now have a cute place holder for your Thanksgiving table.

Have a great day and thanks for checking out this post.

More Print Then Cute cuties from Kadoodle Bug Designs

The last post, I shared with you the cute idea of the 3-D Print Then Cute files.

I had so much fun making them, that I made two more to share with you.

The first one I have for you is the 

What a cute Back to School layout it helps you make.

The paper and the Back to School and apple sentiments all come from the DCWV Grade School Pack.

The next Print The Cut file I made for you today is the 

The paper for it is also from the DCWV Grade School Pack.

As a reminder, you can have them printed and then cut them out yourself and assemble if you do not have a way to use the Print Then Cut feature on a machine.

After you cut them out, put them together with 3D adhesive.
The way to know how they go is the pieces that are bigger go on the bottom and then the smaller they get the closer they are to the top of the stack of cuts.

I hope you find the Print Then Cut files as fun to work 
with as I do.

PTC Cutie KaToodles Football Bear

As school resumes for our school aged children,
Football season begins.
Whether your student is in Jr. High School, High School, or college,
touchdowns and other football plays are on the schedule.

Kadoodle Bug Designs has a few cute files to
help preserve those memories.

to create a scrapbook page for football.

PTC means Print Then Cut.
(Note: it is also available as a cut file and digi stamp)
If your machine will do that and you have a good colored printer, the machine will do the cutting. Mine isn't set up to do that.
I had the file printed and then I hand cut it and put it together.
Once it is assembled, it has many layers to add that make it look 3D.

I used the football page from the DCWV High School Paper pack 
for the background paper.

Another file that Kadoodle Bug Designs has that would go very good with this theme is Simple Life: Football.

Hope your teams win and you have many photos to save.

Have you spent time camping this year?

I have seen a lot of motor homes and trucks with camping
things in them.

At the grocery store, I see people buying the makings for 
smores and other camp goodies.

The Kadoodle Bug Designs has a cute digital file to color called

How cute is it? 
What a cute way to save the memories of 
your camping adventures.

KBD Bears That Care

Who remembers Care Bears?

I do and I loved them. So cute and snuggly. They were good at teaching about emotions and moods.

Bears That Care is a digital stamp made by Kadoodle Bug
that are much like the well known Care Bears.

I had so much fun creating the cards with Bears that Care.

The card bases were cut with dies and the Gemini from 
Crafter's Companion.
The paper, flowers, and brads were from my stash.
I colored all the bears with Prisma Colored pencils.

 I labeled the pictures with the names that the bears would be IF they were Care Bears.

Oopsy bear

Tenderheart Bear

Good Night Bear

Cheer Bear

Fun Shine Bear

Grumpy Bear

 Remember these are really the Bears That Care
from Kadoodle Bug Designs.

 Enjoy a short little video from YouTube about the Care Bears
called "Forget It"

Just Chillin' with KDB DS Cuddly Winter Penguins

Good evening Kadoodle Bug Fans!

Today I have chosen to whip up a fast
little card with DS Cuddly Winter Penguins.

They are colored with Prisma Colored pencils.
I put them on a paper from my stash that
was already set up. I added the words
"Just Chillin'" to the tag area.
I then added Waterfall Stickles around the box the Penguins are in.

Hope you like it.
Have a great week full of crafting!

Flip flops fun

Hope you all enjoying your summer.

I have made a cute gatefold card using 

To make this, I printed two of the Flip Flop. To get it to be a mirror
image of itself, I searched the web to find a free image flipper.
I then colored them with Prisma Colored pencils.
I put them together like I wanted them to look when the gatefold is closed. What I traced became my pattern for the inside (back) of my card. I then laid it on the middle of some cardstock and folded the ends over the pattern. Once folded I glued each flip flop to the folded ends (now the front of the card). I cut the folded pieces to become the shape of the flip flops. The edges where the folds are, I left most of it uncut. I opened the card and glued the pattern inside so that there is a nice, light paper to write a message or invite to give to someone.

I hope you continue to have a wonderful, crafty summer.

Beach time?

Summer is in full swing and melting hot.

I have for you today a cute project made from Kadoodle Bug Designs' Tropical Kids new cute file.

I put them together using glue and 3D Foam Squares to give it dimension. The leaves in the palm trees were applied with glue in the center and 3D Foam Squares on the ends.

The peekaboo card base is from Creative Kuts July train cards.

The kids can be moved in and out of the card base.

There are so many possibilities for this file. One idea is that he hula skirts or heads could be put on action wobble springs so the could move.

We would love to see what you do with this file.

New spin on Surfing Eagle

I have for you today something with motion.

The file I used was Surfing Eagle .

I did modify it a bit by cutting off the wave so it would work better on the spinner.

The cloud paper came from DCWV The Real Stack 3. The rest of the paper was from my stash.

The magic of the spin has to do with pennies. 
Search YouTube for tutorials for spinner cards.
There is one by a lady from CTMH that has some good tips
on it. It is not my video so I cannot share the link here.

Have fun making your spinner cards
and playing this summer.
